Live Chat: Space Junk

July 9, 2020 | 1:00pm
Presented Online

Today's live program has concluded. A recording of the LIVE show will be available shortly. Please check back.

Join us for an Air and Space Live Chat about space junk — the thousands of human-made objects cluttering up Earth orbit. We'll be joined by Moriba Jah, an aerospace engineer with a specialty in space object detection, tracking, identification, and characterization. Bring your questions about orbital debris and what we can do about it.

Watch on this page or on Facebook Live on the National Air and Space Museum and STEM in 30 Facebook pages.

This program is part of the Smithsonian's Earth Optimism initiative.


We’ll be hosting an Air and Space Live Chat on Facebook Live every Thursday at 1 pm EDT until the Museum reopens. Each week we’ll feature a different expert to answer questions from kids, students, and air and space enthusiasts.
